Camped out in Ally Spring in June 2012 as we were on a road trip from Houston, TX to Niagara Falls, Canada. Our campsite was very hard to find as they have several entrances and not very well marked. I did not have cell service (Verizon) so I could not locate my family members that were already situated. We turned into one camp ground that said Ally Spring and were looking for the camp ground – there were no visible signs so we took a road that we thought would take us to our camp ground. HUGE mistake!!!!! Not sure where it takes you, but about a mile or two into the trail – we reversed all the way back. It’s a very narrow road (perhaps a walking trail or for employees to take on a golf cart) but again, it was unmarked. One wrong move made by my DH, and we would probably would have gone over the cliff and onto the river. It was very nerve wracking reversing those two miles out.
After we safely made it out, we got back on the main road and finally found our camp site.
The camp site was nice, with the exception of no hot water!!
The next morning we took a tour of Ally Spring – just gorgeous and breath taking!!!!
We walked around Round Spring and were just mesmerized on how blue the water was!
We tried to do the cave tour – but unbeknownst to us, they only do them at certain times, so we didn’t get a chance to do it since we had to head to our next destination.
We really wanted to see Devil’s Well as well, but it was closed for renovation.
We took a long hike into the woods as there was a sign that said that there was a cave in the middle of it. After walking for what seemed like miles, we got scared and turned around. So who knows if it was even there?
All in all – Ozark is a calm place for a weekend camping site with the family. Even though we went in the summertime – it was cool. Thankfully we had brought big blankets and light jackets.
